Hi. I've been havig an issue using the Nvidia driver.
Everything seems to be set correctly but for some reason the CPU usage is really high when using any graphical app. I'm getting 59 FPS and my video card is a EVGA GeForce GT 520.


My dmesg in 10.3:

WARNING: / was not properly dismounted

I noticed the message above from your report ... may be something else is going on .. not necessarily strictly related to the nvidia driver ...

The content of /var/log/Xorg.0.log could be more interesting in this specific case.

It is not clear how did you have got the "59 fps" value, but it usually means that the video output is synced to vblank, (60 Hz), if you install nvidia-settings package you can turn off "sync to vblank". and repeat the test.

So far I do not see any evidence that correlate the high cpu usage to nvidia driver, other than your words, of course ... I'm pointing out this to avoid going into the wrong debug path.

Assuming however this is the case, and considering that the GeForce GT520 is not very new, and should be supported from previous drivers too, like 340.96, you could give it a try.

EDIT:
NVRM: API mismatch: the client has the version 367.44, but
NVRM: this kernel module has the version 370.23. Please
NVRM: make sure that this kernel module and all NVIDIA driver
NVRM: components have the same version.

didn't noticed it before ... but guess here is your issue.

New installation and still the issue.
Perhaps we disagree about the definition of "new installation".

You are using a custom kernel, and it appears that at some point in time you used a 370.23 nvidia-driver which is not available in FreebBSD repositories nor in ports tree.

[ 5272.270] Current Operating System: FreeBSD elvis 10.3-RELEASE-p8 FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p8 #0: Sun Sep 25 20:25:25 VET 2016 elvis@elvis:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/FABIOLA amd64

We can't really know what you have done or what you are doing, telling us only "new installation" is not going to make us aware of the context, thus it is difficult to provide suggestions, except one: to use the FreeBSD kernel, as shipped from FreeBSD.

I've made a custom kernel just to get my sound card work with OSS. ( audigy with a c0106 chip). Witch Is not supported with a native FreeBSD driver. Ether cards and wireless cards have been retired to mach my specific hardware beyond that nothing have been touched. The freebsd kernel as is shipped is not a option at this point because of that.

The freebsd kernel as is shipped is not a option at this point because of that.

Unless you deleted it, the original kernel should be there, and all you will need to do is to boot using the old kernel ... just for a quick test.

About the user not being member of video group, that's fine provided the user is a member of the wheel group.

Beside, did you managed to solve the "API Mismatch" highlighted in my first reply ?

Hmm ... releng/11.0 ... not reassuring ...

The mismatch API is solved because I just installed the NVidia driver again so I'm using the 367.44 from ports!

About the kernel, I can boot the old kernel normally but with the same results!

You latest report look fine to me, I can't see anything wrong, let aside a conflict related to sound module, supposedly related to your unsupported audio device.

for some reason the CPU usage is really high when using any graphical app
Can you define exactly which applications, or at least one or two ? And which desktop are you using ... (sometimes some desktop feature led to weird undesired results).

How do you measure "high cpu usage" ?

I don't use a DE but a WM (i3) and yeah sometimes some desktops used to cause really weird things! But in this case things like thunar, firefox, pidgin or even a rxvt window causes a suddenly rise in the CPU usage to the 100% !

Apps like, top or htop shows the usage..!

That for itself is not a bad thing at all, especially if you are using a fast disk, a peak in CPU usage is expected and desirable.

I have difficult to use top, but I tried:
Code:
26 processes:  1 running, 25 sleeping
CPU 0: 58.5% user,  0.0% nice,  6.5% system,  0.2% interrupt, 34.8% idle
CPU 1: 46.7% user,  0.0% nice,  8.9% system,  0.0% interrupt, 44.5% idle
Mem: 330M Active, 321M Inact, 1062M Wired, 12M Cache, 2212M Free
ARC: 764M Total, 294M MFU, 422M MRU, 12M Anon, 4335K Header, 32M Other
Swap: 4098M Total, 4098M Free

  PID USERNAME    THR PRI NICE   SIZE    RES STATE   C   TIME    WCPU COMMAND
20809 asx          46  52    0   672M   320M uwait   1   0:07 433.84% firefox
If I look at the firefox row, it is showing a ridiculous 433% ... CPUs usage values are more reasonable, respectively 58.5% and 46.7% each core, plus some amount for system (6.5% and 8.9).

Anyway, after a few seconds, things settle down and the CPU usage drop down:
Code:
26 processes:  1 running, 25 sleeping
CPU 0:  0.3% user,  0.0% nice,  0.0% system,  0.0% interrupt, 99.7% idle
CPU 1:  0.3% user,  0.0% nice,  0.0% system,  0.0% interrupt, 99.7% idle
Mem: 291M Active, 364M Inact, 1063M Wired, 12M Cache, 2207M Free
ARC: 754M Total, 283M MFU, 434M MRU, 16K Anon, 4304K Header, 32M Other
Swap: 4098M Total, 4098M Free

  PID USERNAME    THR PRI NICE   SIZE    RES STATE   C   TIME    WCPU COMMAND
20746 root          1  20    0   919M 61428K select  0   0:08   0.98% Xorg
20809 asx          41  44    0   721M   327M uwait   1   0:12   0.78% firefox

My preferred tool for this type of test is vmstat (or, depending on case, iostat, zpool iostat, ...),

Below my results while running i3, idle doing nothing really, (nvidia 8600GS, driver 340.96)

The last three columns are showing respectively user, system and idle percentages of CPU usage, but there you are also able to correlate that info to disk and/or memory usage.
Code:
vmstat 5 10 | tee -a /tmp/vmstat.log
 procs      memory      page                    disks     faults         cpu

Looking at your outputs your system only has 2GB of memory, so the high CPU spikes are likely caused by swapping.

Not necessarily, heavy swapping would actually make the CPU wait more for I/O than do any real work leading to lower CPU usage overall.

But thats weird.2Gb is not much of course but is not the only system I've used in this machine and they have been using a reasonable cpu portion when running apps.!

No, sorry, it is not.

The suggestion might not be the correct one, yet was given you as something to look at, and it is a very plausible scenario.

You may know it is not the correct one, because you are in front of your system, and you know what you are running there, we can know about that only when/if you eventually tell us.

My thoughts on this:
First make sure that swap is really not in use. What does top say about this?
Then, some thoughts about your kernel config file:
  • device sound is commented out. It's the hardware-independent part of the FreeBSD sound driver so you should have it in the kernel when using sound (after all what I read about this in the FreeBSD documentation). This makes me wonder because you mentioned you need a custom kernel because of your particular sound chip.
  • options VESA is enabled. But you do not need it at all as you use the sc console. You should try to disable it in the kernel options because it tends to sometimes break things if enabled. The reason is that options VESA needs a fully-implemented and bug-free real-mode VGA BIOS. Nowadays practically all PCs use OS-provided video drivers instead and so many VGA BIOSes, especially on notebooks, have only partial functionality, as things that were relevant only in the 16-bit era have been neglected or even even dropped at all, especially on notebooks. Without options VESA the vga driver bypasses the BIOS and talks directly to the graphics hardware, so that such BIOS issues do not matter any more.
  • options COMPAT_FREEBSD9 is commented out. Do you have a particular reason for doing so? I suspect there are some cases in which this could break things without obvious recognizable reason if programs expect a particular kernel behavior that was still common very short time ago.

In this case the freebsd driver conflicts with osscore ..! I could unloaded but is just easier for me keep it out of the kernel.

config complains about this support when is not commented out .

The COMPAT_* options are only needed if you need to run older binaries. It also requires installation of the compatibility libraries, misc/compat9x for example.

If you don't require binary compatibility for older FreeBSD binaries the COMPAT_* can be removed (with the possible exception of COMPAT_FREEBSD32).
